In MS Access (I think mine is 2000), there is an option under the file menu called "Get External Data".  Select it, then import.  The open dialog will come up, and you'll need to change the "Files of Type" drop down to MS Excell.  Find your spreadsheet and open it.  You'll be presented with a window asking how you want to import it.  Pretty simple once you know where to look.

HTH!

Should be straight forward.
Save your Excel file as a CSV (Comma Separated Values).
Then import into Access, ensuring you have a table defined with right number of columns and types.
